Update: Amazon Printer [amazon.com] and Luster Paper [amazon.com] (semi gloss is more expensive at amazon) has the same rebate now, so it's $130+tax (on the full amount) there, now. Make sure you buy the paper from Amazon, not a seller. The default is currently a seller. Here's the Amazon rebate: Amazon rebate [images-amazon.com]

Printer supports printing on up to 13"x19" paper (as well as CD/DVD media). It gets outstanding marks for picture quality and longevity in review http://www.imaging-resource.com/P...n-pro-100/

FYI, I've personally never had a problem with the Canon rebates. I imagnie some people have, but I've done probably 10 of them over the years with no hassles.

Very hot deal if you want a top of the line color printer. Buydig has the Canon PIXMA Pro-100 [buydig.com] for $399 with free shipping with a Buydig/Beach Camera Rebate [152.254]. If you add the Canon Photo Paper Plus Semi-gloss [buydig.com] for $69, the rebate becomes $300, so you get the printer+paper for $399.99+$69- $300 rebate - $169. Free standard shipping in the US. Tax for NJ residents, I imagine. Runs $365-400 elsewhere.

i see. But disabling ink monitoring voids the printer correct? and is there a way to re-enable the monitoring? thanks in advance and rep to the both of you (sorry dont know how to quick multi quote Smilie)
I don't know how either. All good

If you are in the U.S. they can't force you to use Canon inks, cartridges or paper or any other consumable part. They want you to believe that you must use oem equipment but under federal law they are not allowed to require it or fault you for doing so.

Specifically: "Warrantors cannot require that only branded parts be used with the product in order to retain the warranty." --Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act

This extends beyond printers to include any consumer goods. If a warranty is offered in this country it must comply with the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act

That said, if a non-oem whatever damages your printer (not including normal wear) they do not have to cover the damage caused.

EDIT: Realized you wanted to know about disabling ink monitoring. Since the printer doesn't need to actually be altered in any way to disable monitoring (click of a button) they can't say that you acted outside of your warranty. If you damage the printer as a result of printing with empty carts you could be faulted.

They only ink that is unavailable at this time is the light gray. All the other inks have off brand equivalents.

What they don't have yet is off brand cartridges, meaning ink carts with chips so the printer sees them as new.

But, frankly, you shouldn't use them anyways since they can damage your printer. The better method, and also the cheapest, is to refill your own cartridges.

Precision Colors makes good inks that work fine in this printer. I'd suggest the entire CLI-8 set meant for the IP6600/6700 (and other printers) http://www.precisioncolors.com/C6B.html

Then a gray refill from the CLI-226 line http://www.precisioncolors.com/C6C2.html

Unfortunately, for now, the only option is to omit light gray and use regular gray in both spots or to use one OEM Canon light gray cart

The main downside right now is that there are no chips available so you will have to disable ink monitoring on your computer (very easy). There is also no chip resetter available at this point. The carts are clear so its not a huge deal

Also, this printer is actually using a CLI-8 rebranded ink cart, so those fit perfectly. They do however use different chips so the monitoring problem is not solved
I've always bought generic ink with cheap printers mainly for office use, coupons, b&w. So I'm a rookie when it comes to refilling cartridges.. how many times could I refill the same cartridge? Any downsides to refilling besides the light gray? And is the quality gap that not too far off from OEM?

For big rebates like this, I recommend using USPS Certified Mail. That way, they cannot claim that they did not receive your submission.
For me, I just take a good photograph of all the documents and upc. Or just make a photocopy of everything. If they say they didn't receive it, then I will send them a copy.

from what ive read. If you use the genuine ink and good paper quality. 13x19 will cost 3$, 8x10 im guessing 75cents, 4x6 20cents (keep in mind this is without the paper cost)

Quality is at about 90-95% usually, especially from the better companies like Precision Colors and some others. It's hard to give a real number since there are so many factors and different people weigh different aspects differently; how well do they mimic the oem ink, fade tolerance, performance across various papers, how well it performs once you have calibrated it to the printer, etc.
You have to experiment tho, tweaking settings to align better with the printer.
Many people say there is no visible difference once you really learn the ink.

I'd suggest printing a test photo or two, your own or from the web, with Canon inks so you can use it as a reference later.

With a good ink (fresh ink also (buy from trusted seller like Image Specialists)) and some practice you can refill over and over, many people using the same cart 10 times. It will last longer if you refill the ink when it is empty in the reservoir but the sponge is still very wet. That way the older ink is depleted but the sponge is treated as if it has a continuous ink supply, never drying and therefore avoiding clogging. 5 times safely usually. Some people recommend 3 times just because that is safest for people who may not do it correctly, or who switch inks a lot, or who print very rarely.

Don't wait for a print to show signs of low ink. Thats too low and bad for the printer and the ink cart

When they do finally come out with refills with chips and all, you will notice the better ink companies sell actual used Canon carts filled with their own ink. Refill and every once in a while buy a set of those. Still cheap. Usually $4 to $7 a cart

As far as downsides go, well, people come down on opposite sides of this issue. Is there more risk? Yes, but if you read up on it (http://www.nifty-stuff.com/forum/index.php) you wont have any problems. The savings are far greater than the risk for those willing do just a bit of research. Some people just find it stressful or tend to be more accident prone (spilling ink everywhere). Some people say that non-oem ink shouldn't sit as long in the printer, but I don't know if that is true. Personally, I print quite a bit with refill ink, at least once or twice a month. If I was using Canon ink I would be much more likely to let it sit in the printer forever between prints.

CLI-8 is built exactly the same. Interchangeable actually, except their chips are not the same so they cant be monitored by this printer

Quote from krazyshopper View Post :
i learned in my marketing class that printer companies make profit by selling printers very cheap but then jacking up the price of replacement ink cartridges, so make sure you check the price of the ink before you buy and read reviews on how fast it the ink runs out.

wouldnt it be neat if all us slickdealers bought the same exact printer, then we just looked for deals on ink for that printer?
You don't have to go to marketing class to know that fact Smilie

Haha - I was thinking the same thing. Often know as the razor and razor blade business model, this concept has been around for a very long time.

I'm curious. Sine the rebate does not require anything but a copy of the original online receipt, couldn't you just return the paper and save another $50?

A $300 rebate for a printer? This is just ridiculous..Besides, my last printer was a Canon - It burned out after only a year and customer support hung up on me.

Of course you could try. But just like cash back programs, the vendor is likely to report any returns, so you're risking losing the entire $300. It'd be much safer to sell the paper for $20-25 if you don't want it.

The sticking point is that you need to send in the original UPC (i.e., stuck to the cardboard, making a hole in the box). If your original submission gets "lost," your copy may not cut it. I agree on going Certified in this case. I wouldn't bother for a $20 rebate, but for $300, yeah it's probably worth consideration.
